Electrical engineering companies in India for Engineers & freshers

Electrical Engineering is one the of the core branches. Like mechanical, the Electrical Engineers have job opportunities in both governments as well as in the private sector. In this post, I will share the list of top companies which recruits Electrical engineers at an executive post.

If we divide the Electrical Engineer job on the basis of work/industry, we may find following types of jobs for them

  • Project/Construction Jobs
  • Power Sector
  • Metal Sector
  • Home Appliance segment
  • Automobile Sector

There may be few more categories but as of now, I will introduce the Companies which offers high paying job in above fields.

Projects Companies

These firms are best for any Engineering graduates as they offer the highest CTC to the engineers. The career growth is also great as compare to other sectors. The projects companies do the work to set up plants or refineries. In the most of cases, they are far away from the offices. So in initial years of job you may have to serve in the client’s sites which may be in rural or urban areas.

Power Sector Companies

India is the third largest producer of electrical power and the fourth largest consumer in the world. The most of power comes from coal-based power plants which are owned by NTPC and state electricity boards. India also has Hydro, Wind, Gas and Solar plants which contribute around 35% of total power generation. The power consumption per capita is still low as compared to other countries.

So talented engineers demand will always be there in the power sector. You will have a lot of choices to switch job just after one or two year experience. Here is the list of Government as well as private companies in the power sector

In this segments, companies are small and medium scale types. The competition among the companies is really high.

Metal Industries

In the metal sector, Electrical engineers have the whole sole responsibility of smooth functioning of all Electrical equipment installed in the plan. The job profile and pay are almost similar to discussed in the power sector. The most of the Companies in this sector are big Government Firms and reputed private companies. Metal sector engineers can easily switch to the power sector and vice versa.

In metal sector the majority of firms are from Steel, Aluminum and Copper industries. Here is the list of metal sector companies.

  • National Aluminium Company

Automobile Sector

As per Wikipedia, the Automobile industry in India is the biggest in the world. This sector has a 7.1% share in India’s GDP.

As an Electrical Engineer, one can work in vehicle manufacturing units and as a design engineer in the electric vehicles R&D departments. So one cannot ignore the importance of them in this sector too. Most of the companies in this segment are private and the competition between them is very neck to neck. Here is the list of top companies

  • General Motors India Private Limited
  • Tata Motors
  • Ford India
  • Hero MotoCorp

  • Kinetic Engineering
  • Mahindra & Mahindra Automotive Division
  • Ashok Leyland
  • Honda Cars India Ltd.
  • Heavy Vehicles Factory

I have shared the list of many organizations which offers the job to Electrical Engineering Graduates. One has to appear in GATE exam or individual exams in case of government sector company. Whereas, you can directly upload your resume via career section (from official website) in the case of a private firm.
